Best hockey series ever... A Quebec classic
17 May 2003 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

When it was released in 1986, Lance et Compte (He Shoots, he scores...) did spawn a cult following. It married beautifully the elements of drama and sport altogether. The result is still a series of great quality.

Story: Pierre Lambert (Carl Marotte), one of the best junior hockey players in Canada, makes his team, the Dragons, win the Memorial Cup. An NHL prospect, the Quebec National (a spinoff of the former Quebec Nordiques) drafts him as first choice. Being the best junior player is one thing, but the NHL career he's facing might give him more pressure as he expected at first.

He had to injure accidentally his best friend for a team position, playing for the most dictatorial hockey coach ever (excellent Yvan Ponton, who played in Slap Shot...), facing an ambitious female journalist ready to trash everyone to get her scoop, try to settle himself with veteran players, including an aging star at the end of the line(Marc Messier) and with personnal problems, having a bad injury and as well as dealing with his beloved ones, mostly his mom with business problems, his sister who fell in love with a teammate and finally a crumbling relationship with his actual girlfriend (Marie-Chantal Labelle), which might end up tragically since he's interested with the doctor (Beautiful Martinique-native France Zobda) who treated his injury...

Add this up with some hockey action and (minor spoiler) the expected championship at the end and voilà: 13 episodes of the best series Quebec could offer to its fans. Good script, well acted and of course entertaining music until the end... And many sequels following up !

A True Classic to be seen again.
